Flooding: River Wear and Tees warnings still in place
There are dozens of flood warnings still in place across the North East after yesterday's torrential rain.
The Environment Agency issued more than 75 across the UK as the country was lashed with rain for several hours throughout last night. Many of those warnings were for the North East.
The weather is forecast to improve but many of the warnings are still in place, including for the Wear and the Tees.
The River Wear warning states: "There may be flooding to low lying land and roads. The level of the River Wear and the Smallhope Burn has now peaked and river levels are expected to continue falling. Further showers are expected to affect the area on Tuesday, however the rainfall will not be significant and is not expected to cause the rivers to rise again. Our Incident Room is currently open, and we will continue to monitor river levels closely. This message will be updated again if the situation changes. River levels can be viewed on our website."
The Tees warning adds: "Levels on the River Tees are not expected to rise sufficiently and we do not expect to operate Yarm floodgates. We will continue to monitor the situation. The situation is very changeable and difficult to predict. River levels on the Lustrum Beck at Stockton have peaked and are now falling, and levels on the River Tees may rise further overnight however we do not expect to issue any warnings in this area. Current forecasts suggest further showers will fall across the area but these will not impact on river levels significantly."
The warning for the River Tyne has been rescinded.
